Gibson recreates Adam’s #1 Guitar – His 1979 Silverburst Les Paul Custom
Adam Jones is one of rock’s most talented and sonically innovative guitarists, from multi-platinum selling and multiple Grammy Award® winning band Tool. This limited-edition Gibson Custom Shop model recreates Adam’s #1 guitar – his prized original Silverburst 1979 Gibson Les Paul™ Custom. Finished in Antique Silverburst VOS, the graphic on the rear of the headstock was designed by Adam Jones, and a replica of his headstock mirror is included in the custom Adam Jones hardshell case. These guitars were hand-made by the expert luthiers and craftspeople of the Gibson Custom Shop as part of a very special run.

This guitar is in very good condition however it does have two small dings on the back of the body, some light surface scratches on the body and headstock, and a small scratch on the back of the body and some corrosion on the bridge saddles (see photos). The hardshell case is painted factory Silverburst and is extremely sensitive, there is a scuff and ding on the case as well (see photos). Freshly re-strung with 10-46 gauge strings and setup in standard tuning. Comes with original hardshell case, COA, mirror and factory check list.
